» METI plans to provide financial assistance to build commercial facilities near Fukushima No.1

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry plans to provide financial assistance to municipalities near the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant to help them build commercial facilities.

The plan is part of an effort to promote the return home of evacuees from areas affected by the nuclear disaster. Eligible for the new subsidies are 11 municipalities in Fukushima Prefecture, including Tamura, Minamisoma and Kawamata, where an evacuation instruction was given right after the calamity started in March 2011.

The subsidies will cover three-fourths of costs to build commercial facilities that would house supermarkets, restaurants and event spaces.
